Keep praying even if you only have a whisper left. He hears it all..&..Sadece bir fısıltı ile bile olsa dua etmeye devam et. O hepsini duyuyor.

O Allah! I need you more than ever. Please bring peace to my confusion, joy to my sadness, and hope to my heart. Ameen.

Ey Allahım! Sana her zamankinden daha çok ihtiyacım var. Sıkıntılarımı huzura, acılarımı sevince çevir ve kalbimi ümitle doldur. Amin

Veteran Once Denied Free Meal Now Aims To Feed 1 Million Veterans | BlackDoctor | Page 2

20 Dec

A Boycott is in order. The incoming Tyrant approves this kind of thing. He was supported by the KKK, the American Nazi Party and even some whites who call themselves Christians, ie The Christian Identity Movement all these groups plan on exterminating Blacks, Muslims, Jews, Asians and other minorities. Dhrump is fulfilling his promise to Make America white again! This is what happens when you get a Fascist-Racist in office. Sadly Jim Crow is coming back to America.

A similar incident happened to my Dad Edward Palmer during the Korean War in the 1950s right in our nation’s capital of Washington DC!

Not much has changed for Black Veterans. The false accuser was a Trump supporter. Even though the Veteran presented his Military ID and Discharge papers his meal was still taken away.

As a US ARMY VETERAN This makes me feel sad but at least things worked out so he could fed many homeless Veterans but probably not at Chili’s.

Share Your World – 2016 Week 51 – Favorite Holiday Edition

share-your-world-sywWhat is your favorite holiday?

Halloween. But during this season I choose Kwanzaa which is an African-American Cultural Holiday celebrating Black culture and Unity. Actually it can be observed by All persons of African Descent. Kwanzaa enables me to return and honor the traditions of my African Ancestors.

Unfortunately since I’m always at work I don’t do any cooking nor do I get to attend the Kwanzaa celebrations I’m invited to.  However I do have some African garb which I plan to wear and I will post sometime between December 26th and…

Holiday Empty Chairs

Christmas for me is an extremely painful holiday filled with sorrow and sadness. The only good thing is that this year I will be working Christmas day. Tired of the enforced happiness being shoved down your throat so you are practically shitting tinsel and elves. Let’s keep in mind that for some of us Christmas is just another depressing Holiday that I wish I could avoid!!

Espiritu en Fuego/A Fiery Spirit

Their places at the Thanksgiving and Christmas tables have been empty in some cases for many years. Some say you have memories but you cannot speak with a memory and you cannot hug a memory. The tears last forever.

For the ones for which I have no photos I pour Libation and speak your name that your memory may never be forgotten. Wounds that will never heal. Tears that flow like a river into seas and oceans far from the distant shore.  Ase.

Delbert Callahan, Gladys Young, Linda James, Clarence and Mamie Finney and the list goes on of family and friends most taken from this earth way too soon meaning except for two all died in their 50s and 60s. Every year that I get older the more people my age who pass away. Sometimes I wonder if I’ll be next and in what circumstances I will leave this…

Standing with Standing Rock

4 Dec

As an artist, photographer, writer and human being I Stand with Standing Rock!!

Rumpydog

Friday I went on a hike where I learned about the Trail of Tears. How white people forced the Cherokee to give up their lands and walk from Georgia to Arkansas and eventually to Oklahoma. How whites kept pushing the Cherokee out of their way for years, and how the Cherokee fought for the right to remain on their lands all the way to the US Supreme Court, who ruled in their favor, but President Andrew Jackson refused to enforce the court ruling.

ictotmapnps There were several routes taken by the Cherokee to Arkansas and eventually Oklahoma. Those forced to walk the northern route (dotted line) went through downtown Nashville. 

I learned that gold was found on Cherokee land in Georgia. White people wanted that gold, so the US army forced Cherokee people from their homes with nothing but the clothes on their backs, held them in interment camps for months…

Hebrews 11:1New King James Version (NKJV)

By Faith We Understand

Once all villagers decided to pray for rain.
On the day of prayer all the people gathered,
but only one boy came with an umbrella.
That’s FAITH

{2}
When you throw babies in the air,
they laugh because they know you will catch them.
That’s TRUST.

{3}
Every night we go to bed
without any assurance of being alive the next morning,
but still we set the alarms to wake up.
That’s HOPE.

{4}
We plan big things for tomorrow
in spite of zero knowledge of the future.
That’s CONFIDENCE.

{5}
We see the world suffering,
but still we get married and have children.
That’s LOVE.

On an old man’s shirt was written a sentence
‘I am not 80 years old
I am sweet 16 with 64 years of experience.’
That’s ATTITUDE.
